to con convenience the debate to discuss a topic that's quite critical and the u.s. china relationship is definitely most strategic bilateral relationship. tonight's program will include 90 minutes of unintrumpted -- uninterpreted of key u.s.-china relations, and then we conclude with a question and answer period that would be questions collected from all of you, and as well as audience from around the world, twitter, e-mail, and live stream. the format we have this evening is based on the guidelines published by the commission on presidential debates, and there are two sections of questions. professor, one of the co-moderators, will address the first with six questions, and the other co-moderator direct the questions in the second section with six questions. speakers each have a minute and a half to respond followed by a 30-second rebuttal, and in keeping with proper debate decorum, i want to review a number of rules of engagement. first of all, please take the time now to take out your mobile phones and anything that makes noise and switch to the silent mode. what you can do secondly
, and now it's got her to the doorsteps of the u.s. supreme court. one thing i'd like to agree with ms. bowie on is where the rubber meets the road is k-12 # education. the reason we have a bold argument is the big gap in the academic qualifications and various racial groups coming out of high school and first grade for that matter, and that's where we should be pouring our energy and our resources, and i want to be clear, i am by no means saying that what students of color should not be at the best universities, but if they are admitted under similar standards or even slightly different standards from the other students, they are not harmed. it's great. the problem is not whether you're a student of color. it could happen to an athlete. if you were taken into a university, it's very much less prepared academically than your classmates, it's likely to harm you. if you are well qualified, you'll do fine. >> host: next call from sandy, cleveland, ohio, democrats' line. go ahead. >> caller: [inaudible] you don't have statistics to prove that students that are admitted are in the program f
this is what works better in the u.s. however, having put the contentious idea in the table for all you people do care to shed, the reason i bring it out as i couldn't find polling data, but when i talk to tea party people, i would ask them point blank, so what if you could get very large reductions in spending than the prices that were so modest increase in taxes. would you take that question does not get deficits and government as a result. and they all said no. they were more allergic to raising taxes than they were to have in the government grow, which i thought was surprising. he saw that same dynamic by the way the republican primary debate. >> i think that's a great point you actually have seen polling data, but my interviews also cannot they typically will be shown as one person in particular said he actually would favor some sort of compromise there if it were guaranteed that the spending decreases would actually go into effect and typically at the reluctance to any kind of tax increase at all was because experience has suggested to them that tax increase is due in go into effect and
to this year's lecture, which is funded by nasd, which is now in the, the private broker of the u.s. industry. the focus is on financial regulation and each year we have had a leading public official responsible in some ways for u.s. regulation. this year, our speaker is a tiny bit of a stretch, but not really much at all. ed haldeman was ceo of freddie mac from a 2009 to just a few months ago. while in that role, ed was not really a formal regulator. he was responsible for running a very large public financial institution. freddie mac and its sibling, fannie mae are what are called government-sponsored entities, gics. for years described as private companies at the public mission of supporting housing or more simply, as mixed public-private enterprises. but in september 2008, both institutions failed financially. they were placed in government conservatorship, becoming quite unmixed just public corporations. the gics have had many problems of their conservatorship. ad was not part of that arriving by the year after conservatorship. but add was part of the solution. the risk of running freddi
publications in the u.s. are really focused on our national security apparatus and what it's doing, what it's thinking, how it evaluates things. and that's what gets this tremendous effort put into ferreting that information out and reporting it. well, a lot more to the story that's not being reported. what's actually going on on the grounds in pakistan are the claims that they make about efficacy of the strikes and the number of civilians dead correct claims? whether the broader consequences of this effort for u.s. relations with pakistan. for instance, if at the end of the day we wind up killing several hundred terrorists and would-be terrorists with minor collateral damage but we turn pakistan once defined as one of our closest non-nato allies into an irreconcilable enemy with nuclear weapons, that's not a success. >> david, i don't know where you come out on the drone thing, but let me just pose this. it seems to me as a person on, you know, litigating this issue that the government wants to have it both ways. they want to talk over and over again about the drone strikes but never tell
to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's 250,000 jobs a month. in the past, the u.s. has always been an exporter. and that was what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] >> okay. that's one view. anybody want to elaborate on that? >> look, i think we are in a completely different, you know, job market. we're about -- a few weeks during the convention which is bill clinton lineback in 1990 if you work hard and play by the rules you should expect to be in the american middle class. it's basically what he's been saying. obama repeated it. and i just don't think that's na. i don't think it's political. you have work harder, study harder, learn and relearn faster and reinvent the rule naps is because we are in a very different work environment technology is making older jobs outdate faster and spin off new jobs. and they each one requires more education. and i just think if we're going it i think america is a huge advantage in the world. because the i think the world is going to be divided going forward between hig
in bulgaria it is. that's a different question. those are afterthought operations. that is why the u.s. in the u.k. are very far wrong and what they call a crisis management group, to resolve the aspect of cross-border banking. is it done? no. should they finish? yes. then i can see her question with a lot more confidence. >> one thing we had to think about really have a talk about is monetary policy has been so accommodative that is distorted risk, returns and it's got to be unwound at some point. that's a great market timing issue and concern, which might be the next crisis. the other thing is what we've all heard today from everybody is dodd-frank is imperfect, but it also has useful elements. it has elements that you think about and how good the days. we need to continue to think about it. the orthodoxy of dodd-frank is the only solution as a scary one because the world of markets in everything else evolve. if we think dodd-frank is this going to save us from the next crisis, where lake the fridge behind the wine. people go around it. >> simon company talked about monetary fiscal p
the u.s. thought of a no-fly zone, okay, the guys move east to west. then the war was stalemated very quickly. what you had -- what you saw was a gradual explanation, fixed wing planes to helicopters, french brought those in couple months later for precision and be able to bomb those regime targets, and then you brought spotters on the ground and special forces, western special forces to work with the rebels. there was a garage wall escalation. >> should that happen in syria or what's your view? >> i think the problem in syria is if we go to the no-fly zone, no guarantee that's leading to a rebel victory. what we haved too is try to work, find and negotiate is settlement with the regime to have a soft landing in this point in time. >> do you think the regime had plenty of time to think about sort of the negotiated settlement. do you think they have any appetite for one? >> i think that what the regime made many bad decisions along the way. there were many partnerships along the way it could have reduced tensions and maybe ended the war, and it has not done that. it has not shown the s
, it cost $3,000 to pay mileage. we get a tax break. we gave $94 # ,000 back to the u.s. treasury. we're the only member of the u.s. house to do it. >> moderator: an ad that now targets rick nolan. >> remember the 70s? disco was king and nolan was in congress raising his pay attacking medicare. back then, nolan voted himself for pay raises pushing a bill to eliminate medicare. that's right, eliminate. he admitted he's become more radical. wow! now nolan supports a plan that slashes medicare by $700 billion. defeat rick nolan, he's still a radical and still wrong. american action network is responsible for the advertising. >> moderator: disco was king in the 1970s. [laughter] as for the rest of it, you have brought up on occasion in the last debate that rick nolan did vote to raise his own pay. fair game? cravaack: he raised the pay four times in six years, close to 50% than what it was before, but during the same time, congressman nolan didn't show up for work at the same time regarding $716 billion out of medicare. that's true. the obamacare -- >> moderator: that money's not coming d
for the following three scenarios. one, an israeli attack on iran shortly after the re-election of the current u.s. president. two. an israeli attack on iran during a lame duck after the election of a new u.s. president. or, three, no attack. >> okay. thrilling to be in an audience and asked difficult questions. an attack after the current president is elected, certainly would fit in the larger picture of why it would attack if either candidate was elected, and that is that israel has a fear of existential threat in terms of iran, and it feels very much as though the control it had in helping to determine the strategic architecture of the region with its friendship with the united states, is slipping away from it. the arab spring and the second arab cold war take place, and so it is very concerned about that, and it's also extremely concerned that iran does not develop a bomb under the aegis of the united states looking elsewhere as in the case of pakistan. the u.s. assured jerusalem it was not going to let pakistan develop the bomb, and one day the pakistanis did and that was the end of that pict

taken by like the action of the u.s. government that the certain times of conduct will never be tolerated. >> dianne from -- [inaudible] wants to know what your assessment is of prime minister netanyahu's public announcement or desire for redlines respect to iraq? i was hoping i wouldn't be asked that question, actually. [laughter] i must admit that understand the desire of the prime minister to draw a line both substantiatively and figuratively. i think his appearance in the united nations was successful in terms of the quality of his delivery and also i'd say the convincing arguments he made. >> generally speaking, we have a very bad experience with redlines. -- drawn red lines as you can imagine over the years. we have drawn red lines on our relations with the palestinian, we have drawn redlines on our relation with other countries and after wards we had a problem of reconciling our decisions with the red lines we have replaced. so i think the use of a red line creates clarity on the one hand, and also it creates a commitment that not always can be made. and therefore, i p
to change that. that becomes an exercise of equity and common sense by either the attorney general, the u.s. attorney, the chief prosecutor in a particular jurisdiction. yes, sir? >> mr. mayor, i'm dan conway. recently, there's been reports about cyber attacks on the federal agencies and financial institutions. how serious is this threat, and what's the best way -- what are we going to do to defend against it? >> it's a very serious threat. it's a very serious threat because we haven't moved -- our security has not movedded ahead at the same level as our technology so our security is lagging our technology. the way i describe it is in the old days before the interpret; right? we had enormously important records or money, and it was kept in vaults guarded by people; right? you couldn't get to the money in a bank unless you broke in and got past the security guards, gun, and alarms. now, all of that is sitting in space; right? it's in cyberspace. that sensitive information, cash, money, records, sitting in cyberspace, and how protected is that? i don't think it is protected the way it should
welcome you to the first debate between the first two major candidates for the u.s. senate. u.s. senator bob menendez, democratic incumbent and his republican challenger, state senator joe kyrillos. questioning tonight, alfred doblin, the editorial editor of "the record and herald news." brigid callahan harrison, professor political science at my here at montclair state university. herb jackson, washington correspondent for the record. and my colleague, michael aron for njtv. we have questions reported earlier by the news director of wbgo-fm, doug doyle throughout the court pass. here are the rules. each candidate was 90 seconds for an opening and closing statement and each will have 60 seconds to answer questions for our panel. then we will build onto the next question. there is a title like that keeps us on schedule and it is my job to try to enforce a timing light. the audience has promised once again can make my job a bit easier and show proper respect to candidates by holding a pause until we end this broadcast. if you'd like to join the conversation during the broadcast, follow us
into any other wars or u.s. forces in places like syria. convergence. it's basically true for congress. there are disagreements, but sort of the neocon wayne of the republican party loses the entire war left which is very defining in the bush years. none of that exists anymore. it seems like they've just narrowed the difference. >> governor romney moved towards the president's position of iran as forecast and a preview showed he didn't attack on the idea of talking with iran. there was a remarkable moment -- >> agreed on egypt, too. it was just endless. >> remarkable moment when the president said the lead story on the sunday "new york times" was not true. they reported that there was an agreement for iran and the u.s. to sit down face-to-face and use the words not true, which is pretty remarkable. now, to go behind the curtain on that, there is certainly an opening towards that. we probably will see that. it's headed toward that. they just don't have a specific agreement. so look at the head line, and it went too far. just to the story was right and the president didn't dispute that.
arguably a too big to fail question but this is not about jpmorgan chase or barclays. it's about the u.s. and china. china is on the brink of a major change in its leadership. it has written its own prescription for new economic directions which they know they have to initiate or bay to will fall off the cliff. we may or may not be looking at a major change in leadership in this country, but we are looking at the fiscal cliff and i'm wondering from your perspective as somebody who does business all around the world and despite your protestations about not really knowing much about politics, how you assess the relative chances of success for america dealing in the short term with its fiscal cliff and longer-term with its ability to get some semblance of pre-governance and with the chinese to be able to do the same and make the changes in their economy so that the two largest economies in the world will help things stay on line. >> china has huge problems to deal with and there are two. our democracy started with white men over certain age owning property but nine -- 90 million communist p
that i saw when he was running for the u.s. senate in massachusetts back in 1994, kind of a pragmatic problem solver nonideological. what would have put them at the 35/40-yard line but i think he was for the first time this whole campaign who he was as opposed to pretending to be somebody he wasn't. >> judy? >> i think, i keep thinking of "the new yorker" cover cartoon with romney standing there with an empty chair behind obama. a little harsh but i think that is what a lot of people came away to believe. i think it's hard to understand truly what happened to the president. we all know he was cool and somewhat distant demeanor and i think that explains some of it, but it also seems to reflect as charlie just said that the president didn't take it seriously and didn't take romney as seriously of a threat as he should have but the reason i'm having a hard time understanding that is clearly his campaign knew that romney is a great debater. if you go back and watch romney's debate in 1994 concentric kennedy and 2002 against his opponent in the massachusetts governor race, he comes prepare
voters also had a significant impact on the u.s. senate races in colorado giving michael bennet the edge and in nevada giving the incumbent, kerry reid, the edge over sharron angle. it was suggested that at that rate, things were tight, and harry reid actually being behind sharon, harry reid won by five points. in 2012, we project that there will be 12.2 million latinos will vote on november 6. many who are already building. i have already filled out my ballot -- [inaudible] we believe latinos will be affected in 2012. larger share being in california, florida, and texas. consider these five states. with a margin of victory, arizona was the state that john mccain had a marginal victory of a .5% in. these are swing states today. they are an indication of the impact of the latino vote will have on november 6, and certainly something that we will chat about in a few minutes with our analyst. this chart shows again the turnout of latinos for the presidential elections from 1988 to see a steady and consistent increase in the number of latinos in every single presidential election cycle. they
are going to vary by the income levels. first order of business for us is run through the models is the u.s. tax what the affects would be by folks house hold with different income levels see what would happen to the tax rate. those in the room have a hand out that summarizes as a results we have. those at home should be able to find the full study on the website at tax policy center of dpoirg. and what you see, again, is a typical middle class household looking at the tax increase of $2,000. that works out to somewhere in the neighborhood of a 4% point increase in the tax rate. roughly the same increase in tax rate for people in other income levels. if you would for people at the lowest income level and medium and middle within roughly a 4% increase in the tax rate. obviously the dollar amount varies for folks in the lowest begin teal work to $400. the one really strong noticeable difference is the high end of the income distribution. when you get to people in the top 1% income distribution they're tax go up by 7% points and it works to $120 ,000. a large amount of money at stake folks in
work, it would have retarded what later became the arc of u.s./british reconciliation. that is not the purpose of your book but has that occurred to you? it has occurred to me for some time. >> they will indeed have enjoyed defiling the image of the father of our country. >> maybe but mostly because it becomes a grievance. individual grievances interfering with reconciliation with between countries. >> despite the fact that it was really jennings and some of his co-workers who followed through on the actual rescue that is why i would never say is fair to give dolley madison the credit because her patriotic impulse to make sure that didn't happen that led to the rescue of the portrait. if you go to see one of these portraits of george washington painted by gilbert stuart there is the one in the east room that is there today because of the action of jennings and others but also another one that is in the national portrait gallery. it is 95 inches high. you don't know until you look at it was an effort of work had to be to remove it from the wall. .. >>> it really was sca
bush. i noticed as deputy u.s. trade representative, i don't think he's going to change that part of it. i think it needs to be changed. one of the reasons you can't get good people to sign up or to volunteer or to move towards cabinet level positions. once they look into it, and i've heard this from well-known ceos in the country. when they find well, i'm one of two steps removed from the president be that the congress, i think you know. i'd rather not do that. there's two things going on here. one is an efficiency issue with are more removed as a cabinet from the president like we had today. i think you run the risk of not being able to bring in talent who want to interact more at the highest levels of government, given where they might be coming from. with governor romney, given his background and his view toward efficient organizations, probably comment, take a look at it, do the metrics come up in the numbers, bringing the bane and mackenzie consultants and tell them what works and what doesn't. >> maybe they will regain some luster after if it jury. >> and then make some decisions
is at the supreme court level in the 11th circuit may be as they are. but where the u.s. department of education guidelines are. that is all confusing to people. when can administrators draw the line in the settings? went candidate? some legislators have tried to have an successfully passed legislation in texas and elsewhere to try to get schools to put that model in place, hoping to write students put the microphone and a built-in safeguards and those kinds of people chosen trying to set it up to get the right speech. the idea is kind of ironic. they get their religious speech i would say. so that is one cluster of issues to think about his sword out to people because it's complicated for people to understand where that line is drawn. the other has to do with bible courses but there's a lot of bible courses and know it's really focused on it. and states pass laws to encourage bible courses. but these laws are not changing anything much to whether schools may have bible electives. they can do that before the law. what they are doing is trying to encourage and offer state support for those local
